The Hoonah Braves and Gustavus Foxes are both in Anchorage this weekend at the Class 1A-2A-3A (West Region) state volleyball tournament, held today and Saturday at Dimond High School.
Hoonah, which won the Region V-Class 2A title for the fourth straight year, opened the state tournament at 11:30 a.m. today against Tok. Hoonah won the state title three years ago.
Gustavus, which is making its first trip to the state tournament, opened play at 8 a.m. today against Koliganek. Gustavus' team features every girl in its school.
The other first-round matches today, Seldovia played Barrow at 9:45 a.m. and Nome-Beltz played Tri-Valley at 1:15 p.m. The Gustavus-Koliganek and Seldovia-Barrow winners play at 6:30 p.m. tonight in one semifinal, with the Hoonah-Tok and NomeTri-Valley winners playing in the 8:15 p.m. semifinal. The championship match is at 8 p.m. Saturday.
While Hoonah and Gustavus are in one state tourney, a coed team from Angoon is Region V's first representative in the mixed-six state tournament also taking place this weekend at Dimond. Mixed-six volleyball is popular in some of the smaller Bush communities that don't have enough girls for a team, and the mixed-six state tourney is open only for teams in the Class 1A and Class 2A size classifications.
In round-robin pool play today, Angoon plays Point Hope-Tikigaq at 9:45 a.m., Golovin at 1 p.m. and Kwethluk at 2:30 p.m. The other teams in the tournament are Kokhanok, Russian Mission and Galena. Semifinals take place at 10:45 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on Saturday, with the championship at 6 p.m. Saturday.
